Tijuana Cultural Center (CECUT), Tijuana

4.7
Delve into the country's cultural heritage at Tijuana Cultural Center (CECUT). Since first opening its doors in 1982, the center has gained a reputation as one of the leading cultural venues in the region, with new technologies, state-of-the-art facilities, and a varied program of events, activities, and exhibits. The most iconic aspect of the center has to be the OMNIMAX cinema (aka "The Ball"): the spherical, 308-seat theater uses a 360-degree projector, surrounding the audience with a panoramic image.

  • Excellent Museum to know the history of the Baja California, its missions who were the first settlers and colonization.

  • It Is an excellent place to visit with your students, to enter the museum to appreciate and understand more the history of Baja California, as well as the projected videos. It is Also an excellent choice to go either way: As a couple, alone or as a family. There'S Plenty to take advantage of.

  • Amazing place. Was surprised by free theatrical historical performance. Nice botanical garden. Spacious and clean. Friendly staff. Great place for family and friends to visit
  • This place has survived many federal governments and their attempts to make culture look like their own idealized version of what being Mexican in the world means. Just for that it is worth visiting and feel the awfulness of such a location built on the backs of poor Mexicans who are systematically kept away from visiting it or when “invited” are offered a caricaturized version of themselves in the form a musical festivals, book festivals and curios tianguis.
  • I know they got a nice museum in there and don't theater unfortunately none of the coffee shops or anything takes credit cards
  • One of the few true cultural centers around, great galleries, events, forums, plays movies and more. Worth visiting often
  • Very cool building, the area around it has gotten really nice with an almost European feel to it, and there are food stands that I go out of my way to visit parked up outside of it. I'm looking for an apartment near it as I write this.
